I recently acquired the magazine and ammunition for the spotting rifle from a SMAW (Shoulder-launched Multi-purpose Assault Weapon), and I thought forum members might be interested in seeing them. The spotting rifle enables operators to obtain first round hits when the main round is fired. The unusual 9 x 51mm SMAW Spotting Rifle ammunition is formed from a 7.62x51 mm round with a .22 Hornet case inserted in the rear. This ammunition is headstamped RG (Radway Green) 87.
